"This is a magnificent piece of work. It is an engaging read and lets English readers to whom French is not accessible have first-hand access to some now much-discussed evidence regarding the independence of Beauvoir's thought. The translation is beautiful, smooth, and true. A real coup!" -- Claudia Card, Emma Goldman Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin
"This book is an enormously significant event which scholars have been eagerly awaiting for quite some time. Study of Beauvoir's diaries not only alerts us to fascinating and unknown influences on her intellectual and personal development, but it could also form the basis for an amazing study of how the raw material of adolescent emotion, all its masochism and its narcissism, became transmuted into the readable and beautiful texts from which we can all learn so much." -- Meryl Altman, director of women's studies, DePauw University
